Education,Training and Capacity Development for Weather, Water and Climate Forecasting (ETCD): The ETCD Program’s goal is to improve performance of all operational meteorologists and hydrologists worldwide. Improving human performance for enhanced decision support services is done through collaborative training and education. ETCD is accomplished through collaboration between operational hydrologists/meteorologists, scientists and academic staff with expertise across a wide range of environmental, educational and social sciences. These activities engage operational hydrologists/meteorologists, researchers, instructors and students in applied training and simulation exercises which are pivotal to the operational climate, water and weather communities. The goal of improving performance is achieved through a Competency-based education and training program. By meeting the goal of ETCD, forecasts and warnings of environmental hazards will be improved.
